It's beginning to look like Christmas!

Christmas at Maple Memories...

The tree is up and the stockings are hung. The gold ornaments and white lights against the wood in the entryway are BEAUTIFUL at night!! The outside is fun and festive this year too!!!

One little "helper" thought she needed her picture taken when we were done decorating. I think she was right!

Thanksgiving Centerpieces

1. Gather Supplies. Natural Jute from Hobby Lobby, Candle and Glass Holder from Walmart.
2. Hold jute in place at the bottom with your thumb. 3. Start wrapping it around with your other hand. No glue was used. Just wrapped.
4. When you get as high up as you want, bring the jute back to your starting place and tuck under to secure.
5. Drop into glass. 6. Add smaller candles, ribbon, pumpkins, pinecones, and rocks.

Ahhh...ready for company!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
